Impulse shopping: Falling in love all at once...

 "I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” 
― John GreenThe Fault in Our Stars

My mid year break has arrived so I not only have time to work on some creative ideas, but I can also start to reduce the
 always growing pile of books I want to read. I bought The Fault in Our Stars earlier in the year and couldn't wait to read 
it, but between uni reading and library books that were due I didn't get onto it until now. 

Probably one of the most (over) used quotes from TFIOS I used to start off the post today.  I went shopping and fell in 
love with a top "all at once" (there is no slow about impulse buying) then the next day I read this quote for the first time in
 the book, thinking it would work well with this outfit post. My new shirt was a complete love at first sight affair. I had kind 
of halfheartedly had in mind I wanted another collared top, but when I saw the little foxes on this print I had no doubt 
that it was meant to be. These jeans though fit the whole quote of "slowly, then all at once". They were given to me by my 
auntie after a dry cleaning debacle shrunk them, and though I liked them enough at first, one day I was entirely in love with 
them without noticing.

lipstick - rimmel Kate Moss 107
bracelets - equip + stilen
necklace c/o jollychic
boots, shirt - garage
watch - May29th
cardigan - supre

Fashion I like tends to go one of those two ways for me. Whether it be a particular item or a trend, I'm either fully in love within 
seconds, or a bit slow processing but I'm in love without knowing when it happened.
 Is it like this for any of you? Or is it more in the middle?
